Thanks in advance.

unfortunetly too low low for direct entry..should be higher regardless experience. End of service benefits depends your seniority.

Hi guys.
As far as I understand, the roster in the 330 nowadays is much better than the one in both Boeing fleets. Am I correct?
Cheers.

Why should it be higher? Let me guess. You started piloting in late ages and it is bothering you to see a young man in the left seat? No problem. You can apply to Delta Airlines. If you're lucky, you'll be captain in 12 years.

Fleet rosters and destinations change like the wind here. There is only one thing that is constant, They will get their pound of flesh out of you, one way or another. Come here only if you are ready to work and work hard. Nobody has an easy ride for long. If your type has an easy time this month, chances are you are going to be clobbered in 3 months.

Do they know you don't need any notice period, if not, give them a call or e-mail stating so as you may get a joining date at short notice if they require you

A couple of questions for a new joiner:

Any idea how good/bad the Al Kaabi Complex is? I can't find any pictures/videos...

I heard there are only a couple B777 sims in Doha and for the initial training they send you somewhere else. Any idea where are they located?

Thanks!

Use Google Maps, there are plenty of pics and location of the “complex” there.

It's a brand new complex which opened some months ago. A lot of new joiners are being allocated there.
The complex is not bad (gym, swimmimg pool, sauna, tennis and squash courts) and flats and villas are very good. There's not much around the complex, but you can reach almost anywhere in the city within 15-25min by car.
There's a huge mall under construction just 10min walking distance. It should open by early 2019.

Can anyone at Qatar offer some insight on non-type rated F/O recruitment at the moment?

Saw the advertisement for various recruitment events next month, but they don’t specifically mention they are looking for Bus or Boeing rated people (whereas the Qatar Recruitment website very much does)

Are they likely to consider anyone else?

I have circa 2500TT with 1000 on the emb195.

thanks

Windshear... ratchet down the hostilities, and ratchet up level of professionalism,. You’ll garner respect from your peers by doing your homework before posting, or opining your views about other carriers (upgrade times at airlines).

You know Windshear, you can make your age, which may be your weakness, your ultimate strength..
